Weekend Highlights: March 9 - 11, 2012


 Friday, March 9, 2012

I went home after work, ate dinner with the Hubs and daughter and then we got caught up on two of our favorite shows: Jersey Shore and Eastbound and Down. Anybody else watch those? I'm not a huge E&D fan, but we started watching it together season 1, so I kept with it and now it's on its final season. It's one of those things that I just want to finish and it's nice having at least a few TV shows with the Hubs that we both enjoy watching. 

Hubs left at about 9pm for his Friday night gig and I caught up on some blogs after getting the babe to sleep. I then went to bed because I knew I had a big day of spring "cleaning" planned for Saturday. Oh what fun!

I received our Merry Maids gift card last week in the mail (from Hailey winning a cutest kid contest) and I am planning on getting a "deep" clean done through them by the end of this month, so even though my house REALLY needs it, I just did my basic cleaning routine, along with organizing and going through things. I woke up and got right into it. I had all the blinds and shades open throughout the house and all the windows open for awhile, too. I can't believe it got up to 66* in Minnesota in March!

I did all the usual vacuuming, dusting, bathroom wipe down, bed sheet washing, etc, but then I went through some of my clothes/shoes and then I did a basic overhaul of Hailey's room. She's officially out of 3-6 month/6 month clothes and growing into 6-9 month/9 month clothes, so I went through her dresser and closet and came up with an over-flowing laundry basket of too small clothes of hers that I need to now organize and pack away. One step at a time, right?

Some things in our house that still need to be done for "spring" cleaning?
  • Merry Maids deep clean;
  • Backyard doggy poo clean-up (on-going);
  • Carpets cleaned;
  • Kitchen deep clean;
  • Vacuum cleaner deep clean;
  • Dog kennels deep clean;
What is your spring cleaning routine?

Late afternoon rolled around and I found a great point to stop, so I took a shower and then a friend texted me to see if I wanted to go see the new Kristen Wiig movie with her and our other friend. I dropped Hailey off at my Mom's and met up with them.

I loved it and cried in a few different parts. I thought it was super realistic and had a great mixture of funny, dramatic and serious parts. It was a great way to end my Saturday.

We woke up, took showers and went to brunch (just the three of us) at a local place by our house. When we got home Hailey went down for a nap, as did I, and Hubs bummed around in his man cave for a couple hours. When we woke up, we finished the last three episodes of season one of The Walking Dead. Now I just have to wait for season two to come out and get caught up on that before season 3 starts in the fall. My Hubs is so into the show and wanted me to be, too, so I thought I would give it a try and I actually really like it. Anybody else watch it?

After finishing up with that, we folded AND put away about 4 loads of laundry and then I ended the night catching up on Revenge and going through the Sunday paper. I had about 6 episodes in my DVR and got through 4. Woohoo! I love that show!!

Overall it was a great and more importantly a productive weekend. 

Happy Monday! 

What did you do this weekend?
